Kellogg Community College’s women’s soccer team won its second game of the season 2-1 over St. Clair County Community College at home in Battle Creek on Wednesday
Head KCC Soccer Coach Levi Butcher said it was great to get a win at home.
“The team was very creative in the attacking third and were willing to find their teammates in good spots,” Butcher said. “Finding that extra pass led to our two goals, and the unselfish play was really encouraging to see.”
Scoring for the Bruins were freshman forward Ellie McGarry (Bellevue/Olivet High School) and freshman midfielder Natalia Egnatuk (Marshall/Marshall High School). Egnatuk, freshman midfielder Alison McGlocklin (Charlotte/Maple Valley High School), freshman forward Grace Snyder (Middleville/Thornapple Kellogg High School) and freshman forward Allison Biergeder (Battle Creek/Pennfield High School) assisted.
“Ellie McGarry and Natalia Egnatuk scored our goals today, and both were calm and composed finishes,” Butcher said. “What’s better is that they both resulted from great link-up play involving multiple teammates.
“We also had big contributions from our back line and goalkeeper (freshman Maya Ruelas, Kalamazoo/Home School), who kept a clean sheet for the better part of 80 minutes. That is huge for us because we had yet to get that far into a match without conceding a goal. The defensive side of the game is something the ladies have been working very hard on these last three weeks, and we are starting to see the results.”
The day’s results bring the Bruins’ conference record to 2-6-1 and overall record to 2-5-1.
The Bruins play next at 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 2, on the road for a rematch against St. Clair in Port Huron. The team’s next home game starts at 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 16, against Ancilla College on the soccer field by the Miller Gym on campus in Battle Creek.
Admission to all KCC home games is free.
